6 Replies

Hi all! First time poster. I own a 2002 Martin D-15 and now a 2012 D-16RGT.  I love my D-15, but after 10 years I needed a spruce top finally. I have searched tirelessly on this, I've done lots of…Continue

"RGT, meaning rosewood gloss top, is certainly not going to sound like an all mahogany guitar.  My Guild D25 pre archback all mahogany sounds quite different from my Martin Custom rosewood spruce top or my D41. Rosewood is a bit harder than…"

New Martin D-16RGT! A concern.....

Hi all! First time poster. I own a 2002 Martin D-15 and now a 2012 D-16RGT.  I love my D-15, but after 10 years I needed a spruce top finally. I have searched tirelessly on this, I've done lots of reading and playing, and knew pretty much what to expect from the D-16.  I've played various guitars and a friend owns a D-16GT.I love the crispness and volume that the spruce top puts out, a departure from what my D-15 does.  Here's my concern: I am not getting the "boomy" sound on the low end from…See More
